A Journey of Discovery

“When you regain a sense of your life as a journey of discovery, you return to rhythm with yourself. When you take the time to travel with reverence, a richer life unfolds before you. Moments of beauty begin to braid your days.”

~John O’Donohue~

Walk forward and allow yourself to be drawn by a sense of wonder into the unknown. When you learn to trust the processes of your awakening, it becomes easier to experience life as an adventure. Leaving behind the need for plans and a mapped out future, we explore with the exhilarating freedom which comes from being open and vulnerable.

Discovering your inner truth comes through experience. Nothing is guaranteed, but the search helps us to grow. Allow yourself to be insecure, to face adversity and accept the challenges that the unknown has to offer. Much of spiritual awakening is prompted by the realization that there are vast levels yet to explore.

Life is here to offer whatever is needed in order for you to explore your unlimited potential. Taking one step at a time and giving your complete attention to the Now can bring new passion, creativity and clarity in to all that you do.

A World Filled With Wonder

“Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.”
~Betty Smith~

We live in a world filled with wonder. Life is in a constant state of transformation that we can choose to embrace and appreciate as it is in the present moment. Consciousness seeks expression through our experience of the physical plane and when we really pay attention, everything becomes a teacher.
Your perception dictates how you will respond to life. For those who see it as a burden, it becomes one… repetitive, hard, heavy and filled with sorrow.

Conversely, those who view each moment as an adventure are open to new experiences. They live from the heart, meeting new people and exploring the unfamiliar. Even challenges are transformed into something of incredible value. These vibrant souls are the trailblazers of this world. Their courage inspires others to awaken to their own potential.

Let your life be your message. Consciously set intentions and walk forward confidently in the direction of your dreams. Let the Universe surprise you along the way by leaving space for miracles to unfold.

Honoring the Sacred

“Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.”
~Khalil Gibran~
In each life there comes at least one moment which, if recognized and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. The awakening spirit brings a vitality of consciousness into each and every moment. When we approach life with the intention of honoring the sacred, the Divine is able to make itself known in miraculous ways.
Every path is unique. There is no guaranteed road-map to enlightenment; however, as you delve into the infinite, your path will certainly make itself known. Wisdom comes through exploration. Practice generosity, sharing mind, body and spirit without reservation or expectation and you will open portals of new experience.
Bring a sense of inner awareness to this moment and you will discover that the rising of consciousness changes how you view the world. The journey is a sacred place and by honoring the Now, we consciously move through the beautiful landscape of our souls awakening. Whenever you enter periods of movement and change, embrace the experience with a sense of adventure and discovery. This is your pilgrimage.

The Journey of Awakening

“I think… if it is true that
there are as many minds as there
are heads, then there are as many
kinds of love as there are hearts.”
~Leo Tolstoy~

It’s important to find your unique way of connecting to the Divine. Spiritual teachings and writings are simply pointers that may be utilized to correct your course from time to time, but until you discover your own truth and live from a level of authentic experience, those ideas may actually hinder you from going deeper and finding your own way of being in the world.

Older souls have a tendency to explore many different belief systems and teachings, ultimately blending the aspects with which they resonate in order to create a unique perception. This perception creates the foundation used to experience the grand adventure of awakening. Keep in mind that it’s wonderful to explore new levels of awareness. And always, always… look within. Personal strength comes from inner knowing.

You have your own dreams to fulfill and your own journey to walk. Spiritual awakening is a constant movement of energy – releasing the old, allowing room for the new and discovering the clarity which comes from setting down your burdens.

Love Who You Are

Live as if you had purposely chosen every aspect of your life. All of your experiences have set the stage for your awakening.

Far too many people carry the energy of self-hatred which creates a filter that warps all that they see. This is self induced torture. Unfortunately, this energy is compounded by the outward projection of hatred and judgment of others, often triggering others to return it in kind, and a loop of entrapment is created.
Self love, conversely, brings out laughter and the joy of being. It celebrates. It’s silly. It’s innocent and free and expansive. We purposely arranged every aspect of our life experience in order to facilitate the quickest spiritual awakening possible; therefore, embrace your quirkiness, for it is sacred.
What would life be like if there was nothing to complain about? How would you use all the excess energy that is no longer being wasted? There are no limitations. Observe how self-love and celebration transform the present moment. You are a spark of eternity having a unique physical experience. Celebrate it! We’ll be off on a new adventure soon enough.

Find Your Inspiration

“An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”
~G.K. Chesterton~

Greet the day with joyful expectation and explore the world with an open heart. When we approach the present moment with the innocence and openness of a child, miracles begin to unfold. Releasing attachment and choosing to embrace what is allows a new perception to unfold.

See your life as an adventure in time and space. Become a loving witness to the infinite ways in which the Universe speaks to you. When you really pay attention, everything is a message meant to guide your unique path of transformation.
The new friendships, experiences, ideas and circumstances will break you free from any limiting routines you may have created. These compelling energies will awaken the aspects of yourself that are ready to shine and bring them to the surface.
Those who view each moment as an adventure are open to new experiences. They live from the heart, meeting new people and exploring the unfamiliar. Even challenges are transformed into something of incredible value. These vibrant souls are the trailblazers of this world and their courage inspires others to awaken to their own potential.

Joy in Discovery

“It is only when the mind is free from the old that it meets everything anew, and in that there is joy.”
~Jiddu Krishnamurti~
Through experience you will discover your inner wisdom. Though nothing is guaranteed, the search plays a significant role in our awakening. Allow yourself to be insecure, to face adversity and accept the challenges that the unknown has to offer.

Any limitations in your experience are self-imposed. Life is here to provide whatever is needed in order for you to explore your unlimited potential. Take one step at a time and give your complete attention to the Now. New passion, creativity and clarity will undoubtedly expand within your experience.

Walk forward, allowing yourself to be drawn by a sense of wonder into the unknown. Choosing to experience life as a journey of discovery changes everything and when you learn to trust the processes of your awakening, it becomes easier to experience life as an adventure. Leaving behind the need for plans and a mapped out future, we explore with the exhilarating sense of freedom that comes from being open and vulnerable.

Sparks of Light

“The real gift of life is not what you give, but who you become in the process of giving.”
~Debasish Mridha~
You are a radiant being of light and wonderment. When you live in such a way that your joy impacts those around you, then you are fulfilling beautiful aspects of your soul’s purpose. Sparks of light can create a magnificent impact. Whether emitting soft flutters like lightning bugs or awe-inspiring cascades of fireworks that light up the night, your light is transformative.
An unlit candle isn’t sad or evil, it’s potential is simply unrealized. By gently demonstrating a different way of being in the world, we can be an inspiration to those who have yet to discover their inner light and potential. We must begin by recognizing our shared humanity.
We are all engaged in a lifelong exploration of the nuances of awakened living. Choose to be led by joy, enthusiasm, passion and humor and you will become a powerful, conscious co-creator in your own experience. Your adventure is unique and the Divine seeks to express itself through you.

Self Discovery

“I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.”
~Hermann Hesse~

When you learn to trust the processes of your awakening, it becomes easier to experience life as an adventure. Leaving behind the need for plans and a mapped out future, we explore with the exhilarating freedom which comes from being open and vulnerable.

Discovering your inner truth comes through experience. Nothing is guaranteed, but the search helps us to grow. Allow yourself to be insecure, to face adversity and accept the challenges that the unknown has to offer.

Any limitations in your experience are self-imposed. Life is here to offer whatever is needed in order for you to explore your unlimited potential. Taking one step at a time, giving your complete attention to the Now, can bring new passion, creativity and clarity to all that you do.

Be drawn forward by a sense of wonder. There are infinite levels within you waiting to be explored.

 

Facing Challenges

“The spiritual practice of relationships is about working on ourselves only, freeing ourselves from the constricting grip of our own unhappiness. It is not the other person’s job to take our unhappiness away; our discomfort is our own responsibility. Attending to our own spiritual tasks – seeing our judgments, opinions, beliefs, demands, and staying present with the fears out of which they all arise – frees others to move toward us. Then, when they no longer feel the need to defend, they become more willing to take care of their job. Thus joy in relationships becomes possible.”   
~Ezra Bayda~   

The obstacle is the path. Be aware that what you do not want to change is exactly what you need to look at the most. Have the courage to turn inward and face your shadow-self with loving, ruthless honesty. Your attention and awareness begins the process of transformation.

Bring a sense of adventure to the journey of your life and seek to find unique ways to face the hurdles you encounter. Whether found in health, relationships, finances or within your spiritual practice, you are ready for something transformative to enter your life. Your willingness to be an active participant in your own growth guarantees movement in your experience.

Be kind to yourself. There will be moments of brilliance as well as times when you may miss the mark. Empowerment calls upon each of us to take personal responsibility for our current state of consciousness so that we can engage life with an open heart. Act from the heart and allow circumstances to unfold as they will.
